I have a pre-existing condition that was made worse by my work. Is this covered under workers’ compensation?
Generally, yes. If a work-related injury or work activities substantially aggravate or accelerate a pre-existing condition, that condition is covered under Minnesota workers’ compensation.
Insurance companies frequently try to deny claims involving evidence of a pre-existing condition. Just because the insurance company says your condition is pre-existing does not mean that you have to accept their position. This is a very common defense.
